RE: The tariff classification of a Dual Axial Washer from South Korea

Dear Mr. Simpson:

In your letter dated February 3, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted a sample and a drawing of a Dual axial Washer. The Dual Axial Washer is a steel ring that fits onto a tapered roller bearing and protects the inner ring of the bearing from any deformities when the tapered bearing is assembled with a HUB. The axial washer remains as a part of the taper bearing but performs no other function. The rings are used with unsplined wheel HUB bearing assemblies.

The applicable subheading for the Dual Axial Washer will be 8708.70.6060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts and accessories of the motor vehicles of headings 8701 to 8705: Road wheels and parts and accessories thereof: For other vehicles: Parts and accessories...Other. The rate of duty will be 2.5% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Robert DeSoucey at 212-637-7035.
